Late last year, I was diagnosed with a brain tumour. I'm physically fine, but am coping with increasing symptoms. Nothing awful, no pain thank goodness. But it's knocking me for six. There's little I want to do and luckily, because I work for Mr Dunnit and he's a sweetie, little I have to force myself to do. I walk like a drunk, half of my face is frozen, I'm deaf in my right ear, my right eye is sore and my vision is double until I've been awake for a few hours. Oh yeah, and I'm super tired all the time. It's very, very boring. But it does account for the lack of posting. I know, any excuse! Below are a few details that you may or may not want to know. Read on if you do, finish reading here if you don't!
It's not malignant. Doctors tell me it's therefore benign. But I'm avoiding use of that word; a brain tumour that makes you permanently deaf on one side and has a slew of side effects for life isn't really benign by definition is it! I'm on the wait list for surgery, it will probably be May. More than happy to wait my turn, there are people discovering malignant tumours and other brain disorders who need not to wait. In summary people, I'm not about to die. I am however, not rolling in clover just now. So I'm not going to be posting nearly as often, because I'm not doing much that's worthy of blogging! Having said that, I will continue to blog; but I already know it won't be very often. The gracious Jan (LLJ) has agreed to take over WOYWW so that we don't experience any interruption in the week numbers. I'm not sure when this will be, but I'll flag it up so that you know to visit her blog as the host.
Well, that was horribly serious wasn't it! I just wanted to explain my absence really - and remind you - Carpe Diem, gentle reader!
